Groholt, Berit; Ekeberg, Oivind; Wichstrom, Lars; Haldorsen, Tor
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v29 n4 p295-308 Win 1999
Suicides of persons under the age of 20 between 1990 and 1992 in Norway were examined for gender differences. Females more often attempted suicide, wrote farewell notes, and used less violent methods. The adjusted risk for suicide related to affective disorders and disruptive disorders differed little, as did the effect of frequent use of alcohol or substances. (Author/MKA)
